Video and Full Interview Text

Leisa: Hello. I'm Leisa Holland-Nelson, and welcome to another edition of Women Mean Business. Where we're going to take you up-close and personal with extraordinary women doing extraordinary things. My guest today is Shushana Castle, the coauthor of Rethink Food. An incredible new book put together by 100 doctors who can't be wrong about us eating right and feeling healthier. Shushana, you've had an extraordinary career. I'd love for you to share with our audience, which has a lot of young women in it, your best advice for achieving the success that you've achieved.

Shushana: Well, thank you so much, Leisa, for having me here. The advice I would give the wonderful women out there today is what my mother and my father suggested of me. And that is to stay strong no matter what. Life can bring you down. There's complications we will find surrounding us as we go. But to keep life light. Stay focused on the goal. When we're vulnerable, when we're feeling down, stay strong and just don't let it bring us down because life is not so complicated. I think sometimes we make our lives just too complicated. But life is filled with opportunities and it's available for us. So just stay focused, get excited, bring people along with you. Teamwork is lovely. Barbra Streisand sings this beautiful song, people that need people are the luckiest people in the world. So ask a friend, get a mentor, bring other people into the circle. People are so delighted to help, especially the young generation. So that's what I would advise.

Leisa: Thank you very much.

Shushana: Thank you, Leisa.

Leisa: There you have it. Extraordinary advice from an extraordinary woman. I'm Leisa Holland-Nelson, president and co-found of Content Active, Houston's leading web and mobile design and development company. You can find me at or follow me on Twitter at LHNelson. We'll be back again next week for another edition of Women Mean Business.
